Two Balearia Visentini Ro-Pax Ships To Be Converted Into LNG Dual-Fuel

MAN PrimeServ, the after-sales division of MAN Energy Solutions, has won the contract to convert two ro-pax ferries from Baleària to dual-fuel operation.
Sister ships, the NAPOLES and SICILIA, are currently each powered by 2 × MAN 9L48/60A main engines, which will all be converted to 9L51/60DF units that will enable running on LNG.

The conversion of the NÁPOLES is due to take place in Spain between November 2018 and January 2019, with the conversion of SICILIA to take place from October to December 2019.
